Endeavor registration will open on October 1, 2019 for January 2020 and closes on October 31, 2019. Be sure to check your availability before registering for the program.
Endeavor participants are able to move back to their residence halls early from winter break. All students participating in Endeavor will need to request an early move-in through Residential Life. After you register, you will receive an email from us when you need to request early move-in.
How to request:
If your registration to Endeavor has been confirmed, you may request early move-in by following these instructions. You do not need to check in with Residential Life when you arrive back on campus unless you lived off campus or were abroad during the fall semester.
No, Endeavor is a free program. The only costs to you during the program will be your meals, which will be charged directly toward your meal plan or can be purchased in whatever way you would normally purchase food on campus (e.g. EagleBucks, cash, credit card). Please note that participants will be charged a fixed price of $12.99 for a buffet-style lunch on Thursday.*
Because of the planning and resources required for the program, as well as the generosity of the alumni who are volunteering their time, there will be a $150 fee assessed to students who sign up and do not show up for the event.
*If the cost of food is at all a concern for you, please contact Rachel Greenberg in the Career Center as soon as possible.
Endeavor takes place on a variety of locations within the Chestnut Hill campus. Specific information about locations will be provided to all participants as we get closer to the event.
Yes, because of how the program is designed, students are required to move back to their residence halls and attend all sessions of the Endeavor program from Wednesday, January 8 through Friday, January 10.
While meals will be a part of the Endeavor schedule, they will not be covered by the program. All meals will be charged directly toward your spring meal plan, should you have one, or will otherwise be billed to your student account and/or EagleBucks. Please note that all participants will be charged a fixed price of $12.99 for a buffet-style lunch on Thursday.
Please email Rachel Greenberg, Director of Career Education and Strategic Initiatives, if you have concerns about the cost of food.
As part of Endeavor, all student participants receive advice from participating BC alumni throughout the day in a variety or large and small group formats. Students are strongly encouraged to continue to develop those connections with alumni after Endeavor, and if fostered, those connections could develop into mentorship over time!
Additionally, you'll be supported during Endeavor by both a Career Center staff member and an Endeavor Fellow. Endeavor Fellows are highly trained student leaders and former program participants, who will help you reflect on your experience during the program and empower you to reach your goals after the program ends.
